Replacing Gene Hoglan he had a heavy burden to carry, but he managed perfectly. I canīt say that he is better than Hoglan (who the hell is??), but even more technical and progressive.
So, tell me what you think about him and tell what else you know of this quiet, amazing man...
Correction, he parted ways with Iced Earth well over a year ago and is now involved with the Howard Stern show and does his own standup comedy, Bobby Jarzombek replaced him, and also check out the album 'The Fragile Art Of Existance' which Chuck did with Richard after 'The Sound Of Perserverance' album under a new bandname called 'Control Denied' (basically Death with a powermetal/progressive metal vocalist).
